June 2021: Table of Contents

In the Midwest, you never know when you’re going to get hit with another bout of unusual weather. One day it’ll be 70 degrees with a light breeze and sunny skies—and the next day you find yourself inside a snow globe as snow falls down around you in giant, wet clumps. One thing you can rely on though, is that the weather (if not slowly), does improve. Cold air, rain and snow gives way to weeks of sunshine, greener grass and beach-perfect temperatures.

While it may not feel like it yet, we know it’s coming. This issue is to help you prepare, get inspired and enjoy everything the weather has to offer (and to look good while doing it).

Start by exploring our section of calming pieces inspired by seaside tranquility. Featuring lightweight tops and cardigans — all with either striped or lacey details — these will become your staple pieces to mix and match throughout the season.

Feeling bold and playful? You won’t want to miss the incredible Mariza Striped Skirt (on the cover!). Yes, a knitted summer skirt! Knit in six different colors with a slight bohemian flair, this beautiful garment also makes a great stashbuster.

Featuring summer accessories (scrunchies, bags, scarves) and gorgeous tops inspired by the warm tones of a summer sunrise — you’ll want to knit them all!

Happy summer knitting,
Caitlin Eaton
